Peaceful, comfortable, quiet chalet with lovely private pool. Everything that we needed for our summer vacation on our motorbike. Close to lots of attractions and great biking roads. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday with great facilities and helpful owners. John & Barbara

So close to the cycle path, walks and amenities. The chalet was clean, comfortable & quiet, and the pool was wonderful at the end of a day of touring. Karine & her Maman made us feel very welcome & provided lots of information on the local area and walks. Thank you for a lovely holiday. John & Barbara

We very very impressed with the hospitality of Herve & Sylvie and with the cleanliness, comfort and styling of the cabin. We spent a lot of time reading and relaxing and enjoyed spotting the local wild cat. We would thoroughly recommend staying in this cabin and only wish we could have stayed longer.
